'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Grabs An A CinemaScore Grade

In the United States and Canada, Spider-Man is showing stronger numbers than recent films such as Deadpool($12.7m) and Wonder Woman ($11m), but behind the last Marvel Cinematic Universe film - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($17m). And, though numerous finer points of the studio's deal with Sony have yet to come to light, it does seem like he's here to stay.

Spider-Man: Homecoming gets off to a blazing start in India with some terrific reviews and good box office collections on day 1.

As well as telling a complete, thrilling story, Homecoming does a great line in sowing the seeds for things to be picked up further down the road.

However, if we go by past records and considering only the Friday figures, the new Spider-Man movie has not been able to beat the opening day figures of Spider-Man 3.

Looking back at Sam Raimi's somewhat dated Spidey trilogy and the unfortunately misguided Andrew Garfield Amazing Spider-Man flicks, it's easy to see how the MCU has brought the character into 2017 with a bang, while firmly planting seeds for the future.

On the global front, Korea is particularly receptive to the Tom Holland-led film with $10.4m - an opening day record.

They're on track for a $120 million weekend.

The studio also has a solid hit right now with "Baby Driver".
